Last month, reports revealed that the cast of “Love & Hip Hop” was in a major dispute with producers of the show over their salary and refused to sign on for new episodes of the show until their salaries were increased. Now, after weeks of waiting, it seems like at least some of the cast has come to an agreement with producers as Yandy Smith recently claimed that she’s happy with her paycheck.
TMZ recently spotted Smith on the streets of New York and, though she couldn’t say whether any of her cast mates reached an agreement with producers, she revealed that she’s signed a new contract for season four of the show and is happy with her new salary.
“Everything is okay,” said Smith. “You know, I can’t speak for everyone but I can speak for myself. They got their money right. I’m happy, very happy.”
Smith also explained that she’s already begun filming for the new season and that Vh1 cameras would possibly film her that same night.
Well, at least that one cast member who has been confirmed for season four. We’re sure that we’ll find out who else settled their contract dispute and is coming back to the show – or getting dropped – in the near future.
But this isn’t the first time that cast mates have banded together for a salary hike. Check out some other major cast demands below. – nicholas robinson
